Each vineyard has its own unique style and simply visiting them is an interesting experience in itself.

Frogmore Creek Cellar Door

Located in the heart of the Coal River Valley, the cellar door has a backdrop of rolling hills, vineyard, winding waterways, farming pastures and rustic homesteads.

Their wonderful wines are produced from grapes sourced off two cool climate southern Tasmanian vineyards and branded as Frogmore Creek, Winemakers Reserve and Single Block Series.

Puddleduck Vineyard

Puddleduck, nestled by water, is an extremely tranquil place to relax. Water birds gently glide by as you taste their range of award winning wines.

Coal River Farm

Our farm is all about growing and making things that we enjoy eating. Our family run business combines growing, making and sharing the spoils of our labour with anyone that cares about where their food comes from.

Richmond 

Richmond is one of Tasmania’s earliest settled towns and features some incredibly beautiful early colonial architecture like the Richmond Bridge (1823). A visit to the gaol built in 1825 is also a must. its most infamous prisoner inspired the famous author charles Dickens to create the character Fagan in Oliver Twist.

Wander through the beautiful historic street scape which offers an array of artisan shops, antique stores and delicious produce. The Richmond Arms is a great place to sample local beverages and absorb the tranquility of the township.

Pooley Wines

The vineyard is run by the third generation of the Pooley family who are dedicated to producing wines of outstanding quality. They offer wines from two of their Coal Valley vineyards to give guests the opportunity to distinguish the taste difference through soil change.

The cellar door is rustic, one of grandeur and housed within the historic estate at Richmond. Our tour takes you on a very personal tasting of award winning wines and you can be assured of a great experience.

Riversdale Estate 

Owned by sixth generation farmers, Riversdale Estate features a gentle undulating vista of sheltered bays and farm lands.
